SOME WISHES DO COME TRUE
Ethan Gallagher is a firefighter in Darling, Vermont, who followed tradition and pledged his love on the Kissing Bridge to ensure lifelong happiness. A few years later, he's a widower with two rambunctious boys who no longer believes in magic. But even he has to admit that free-spirited Willow Dunaway fills him with wonder and an attraction he cannot deny.
Willow's come back to Darling a different girl than the one who left after high school. Overcoming her past and owning her own business has made her into a strong, independent woman. Single dad Ethan appeals to her in a way she didn t expect, even though settling down is the last thing on her mind. But after fire destroys the local food bank, the town rallies, and a fling between Ethan and Willow leads to unintended consequences. Can they find a way out of their heartbreak to make a home in each other's hearts?
SOMEONE TO LOVE by Donna Alward is a beautiful, emotional tale about love, loss, and allowing your heart to heal from the heartbreak of the past. Willow Dunaway has come a long way since her teenage years. Living away from Darling gave her the space she needed to deal with the devastating memories from her past, but since she has returned to her childhood home, she feels a peace and serenity like never before. With her business doing well and close friends who are always there for her, Willow no longer feels the echoing loneliness that haunted her for so many years. But when she comes into contact with a sexy firefighter, Ethan Gallagher, her relaxed world is turned upside down. The last thing that she needs is a handsome brooding man who disapproves of her.
Ethan Gallagher lost his love for life when his wife died almost two years ago, and while he does everything he needs to for his two precious little boys, he has accepted the fact that happiness is out of reach. But when Willow is around he cannot help but feel more positive about everything, and that annoys him beyond belief. Especially because she stirs feelings of passion within him that he thought were no longer possible, and she is just so damn giving and compassionate to everyone around her. But just as they begin to embark on something more than just friendship, an unexpected turn in the road will turn their lives upside down. As harsh words are said can Ethan and Willow let go of their fears and embrace the possibility of a future together? Or is taking a chance on loving somebody not worth the risk?
Yet again, Donna Alward takes us on a beautiful heartwarming journey to the close-knit community of Darling, Vermont. Willow and Ethan are complex characters who have very different approaches to life but yet share some heartbreaking similarities - loss, loneliness, grief for something that should have been. Willow has learned to deal with her past but has always maintained a safe distance from relationships, while Ethan never expects to find happiness again and fights it when he does. Together, with the help of some of Darling's loveable characters, SOMEONE TO LOVE by Donna Alward weaves a sincere tale that will bring tears to your eyes, and make you hot under the collar as their intense connection is off the charts! SOMEONE TO LOVE by Donna Alward is the perfect read for contemporary romance fans everywhere and I cannot wait for the next instalment.
